I trained as an accountant and two years after qualifying went to work for a software company – Orchard Business Systems, creator of the internationally-renowned Finax package (and several others). Following the takeover of the company by Paxus and then Solution 6 I left with two other former Orchard directors to set up The Knowledge Base. Over the years the other two have moved on to new and exciting ventures, leaving TKB to provide IT training, consultancy and strategic advice to mainly small and medium sized businesses. Most of my clients are firms of accountants or other professionals, but with a few others that came via recommendations from my practice clients. I spent 3 years as chairman of the ICAEW’s IT Faculty and I am still a committee member. I produce a newsletter aimed at accountants with an interest in IT and also write for the IT Faculty newsletter.

  1. I am in the midst of the formidable task of business startup. The most daunting IT problem is getting my head around Access 2007 in terms of it’s advanced e-commerce application. I need to retrain and your publication seems like a beacon in a stormy information sea.
